The alternator shouldn't make the vehicle go limp unless your battery is bad. If the battery is charged you should be able to drive for miles before it craps out, even with the headlights on. I think you're suffering from a misdiagnosis.

Thank you, I assume you are right. I did change the battery the first time I changed the alternator because it was older. I was hoping that someone here would have a similar experience and could tell me their solution. 馃槈
You're most welcome. First thing is, get it scanned. There aren't many things that can make the van die in the middle of the road without the ECM complaining, and even then a lack of codes will tell you a lot of things it can't be. Most parts stores will scan your ECM and ABS free if you don't own a scanner. Post the codes (or the lack of them) and we can offer some opinions.
